Igniting Passion

Late one evening, while strolling in the Piazza del Popolo we came upon a church whose doors were open and out of them came beautiful singing that wafted through the piazza. We were drawn to enter and discovered the church filled with with men and women of all ages, swaying and singing to the live music and waving their arms in the air with palms open to the heavens, giving themselves completely to their experience with a feeling and passion that was palpable. We could not help but join in with joy and amazement at the teenagers, too, expressing themselves openly with such emotion.

Yoga and Personal Leadership

Self mastery and self-management are quickly becoming valued attributes in our increasingly outward directed society. The enlightened leader is the one who has a connection with his/her spiritual essence and makes a conscious decision to grow and evolve and become a better person within himself by taking up practices that lead to inner/spiritual growth.


The greatest act of creation is man’s ability to recreate himself. You have the capacity right now, in this very moment to transform yourself on the deepest level. The essential ingredient is a burning desire to do so. This desire comes from the Soul level.

Nature Breathes

One of the many gifts of nature is that in its very essence it is present. Nature has its own consciousness. Sometimes when I’m at Rancho la Puerta, I gaze at Mt. Kuchuuma and I could swear the mountain is breathing. When we go out into nature we are lifted to its consciousness which is always in the powerful present. When we are truly in the moment, the mind is not worrying or wandering, causing a leakage of energy, it is in the here and now.
